    Hi Guys,

    For the last few weeks I have been very busy upgrading my tank to the suggestions that were made by you.

    I have installed a sump with a Reeftek PS2 skimmer and DSB (got rid of my hang on skimmer and 2 canister filters). I have also replaced the old powerheads with 2 SEIO 1500 litre pumps. The lighting has been upgraded to 2 x 4' blue actinic T8's and 4 x 3' 10000k T5's. I have also just installed a chiller.

    The improvement in my tank has been amazing - the corals that were busy waning away havbe started regenerating and my sun coral is tonight beginning to bloom.

    I have also found a LFS who I believe I can trust and recommend to anybody who lives in the Pretoria area.

    As soon as I can convince my eldest to come and take pics I will post them.
